Shoot first, ask questions later. You have the right to defend your property.

If they die from being shot it's their fault.

Different info

but in truth, if the situation ever came about and I had a gun on me... I don't think I would be thinking about the law and mainly doing what I could to protect my life...

Not in Canada. Hate this legal system where the victim sometimes gets off worse than the attacker.

I read this one story where somebody defended their home/family from an armed burglar, and they were put on trial for hurting/ killing the burglar (I forget what happened). Luckily the judge had some common sense, was just like WTF, and let him go

Treat every weapon as if it were loaded.
Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to fire.
Never point your weapon at anything you don't intend to shoot.
Keep your weapon on safe until you are prepared to fire.

Sorry, just having flashbacks I guess.

Don't discharge it unless you are using it for its purpose which is to shoot another human being (yeah as bad as that sounds, that's the intent of the weapon if used). I don't agree with brandishing weapons as warning or shooting warning shots into the air. If you get your gun out, and especially if you discharge it, you better do it right. Otherwise, just leave it be.

i seriously wonder what would happen if someone got in and drove off...would the car have enough power to plow through some people and then others would move away? or would you hit a few people, be stopped by that and then be jumped and probably killed? can the masses stop the car? would it be best to back up first?

if there's someone who can scientifically rationalize this, that would be cool

Rather than shooting into the air to scare the rioters, what the VPD needed was a directed energy system like the ADS. http://www.activedenialsystem.net/

I dont care how drunk or high you are, if I can stand a block away, and make every inch of your skin feel like a white hot 120W bulb is being pressed against it (whether that patch of skin is covered in clothing or not), with no burn marks later to show your personal injury lawyer, then I pretty much own you.

I dunno about a smart car, but the German V10 with many hundreds of horses should have no problem plowing through a few humans
check out the video of the van crushing protestors in Egypt, it clears a whole bunch of people (not condoning that, they actually had a reason to riot, not just some spoiled teens), and that's just a van.

speaking of spoiled teens, I was watching the Canadian news on my igloo TV and man some kid who set a cop car on fire came from some big ass mansion, dad was a doctor, etc. WTF?

it's hella funny though, they read out the names of some rioters with pictures and ALL their personal info. Get owned. More to come too lol. Have fun vancouver 5-0 :P
